Duke / Fuqua MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Open Interview Period / 2nd Year Student / On-Campus

The interview at Fuqua was very casual and comfortable. When you set up an interview, you get to choose the timing of your interview and class visit. There were many times when I was with other applicants, and many students would drop in to talk to applicants. I set up my schedule to have lunch with students, attend a class, Q&A with admissions, visit an operations management course, and then conducted my interview.

The questions were fairly standard, and the 2nd year student only had the opportunity to look at my resume. See questions below:
* Tell me about yourself
* Why MBA and why now?
* Why Fuqua?
* Greatest work and personal accomplishment
* Tell me about a time of conflict
* What do you do outside of the classroom?
* Personal weakness you would like to work on

My interviewer did not cover many questions, but we spent a lot time having casual conversation.
Overall I like the very casual atmosphere Fuqua has. None of the questions were surprising and seemed fairly standard.
